Newpark Furloughs

Would someone confirm this. I left in 2018. I wish you all the best and good luck as we battle through this pandemic.


for bringing down NR stock to a penny stock. We can blame it on the coronavirus and the oil/gas price wars but lets be honest, there has been a disease (lets call it the PH/PV/GP virus) at the company since 2014 and it was bound to destroy what the... —  read more 

PR for Newpark

From a brokerage analyst who sums up what we have ALL said the past 5 years: Some stocks are best avoided. We don't wish catastrophic capital loss on anyone. Spare a thought for those who held Newpark Resources, Inc. (NYSE:NR) for five whole years... —  read more 

The 3 stages of Newpark

Stage 1: 2000-2014. The builders. Those who built the company Stage 2: 2014-2020. The PV Millenials. Those who rode it straight into the ground Stage 3: 2020- . The fools. Those who stayed and watched it sold for pennies on the dollar

Reduction in Workforce

Look out for your neighbors disappearing. If Corona doesn’t get them, maybe the RIF will. Round one is top earners. Round Two performance problems. Round three Is reserved for those that crossed GP’s path. Keep your head down and your resume fresh.

Three days into the new year and LGC Deepwater is already losing money. Perhaps they should hire a third field service manager.

Rig count 803

Down 3 for the week, down 276 for the year. Looks like whoever called 800 hit the nail on the head. NP selling $50 OBM ain’t helping margins either

Allowance for doubtful accounts

Will only get worse folks. Shale companies have finally met their match-no investor money. Pyramid scheme is effectively over. Permian will see HUGE reduction in rig count In the next 12 months. If any doubt, look at CHK. NP better closely... —  read more 

Another losing quarter

NP still losing $$. Fluids margin was 3.8%, not even enough to cover corporate op-ex. More excuses, Gulf not carrying their weight, blah blah blah. BUT we are positive cash flow. That’s the ONLY bright spot for PH. Oh yeah we bought a toilet... —  read more 

The new presidents sweet deal

I truly hope anyone that has ever contributed a shred of profitability and is still left demands a raise TODAY. The new Presidents deal completely shreds any common sense left in the NP toolkit. Let’s see, you hire a guy who isn’t a US citizen nor... —  read more 

Oilfield Service Companies Barely Surviving

For the oilfield services industry, it’s no longer about merely navigating a downturn. It’s now about survival. Five years after crude began its plunge to less than $30 a barrel from more than $100, the companies that drill and frack wells are living... —  read more

Age discrimination at NP???

Just look around you - what's the one thing you notice? The faces that are looking back at you are getting MUCH younger after every layoff, and older employees are few and far between. Is there really nothing to be done about this? It's certainly not... —  read more 

Did anyone notice?

Q1 conference call, PH alludes to upcoming costs of $1-2m in Q2 for consulting charges as part of long term strategy. Let me get this right: on top of Corp officers pay and perks, Board stock and perks ~ you have TO PAY someone to TELL YOU HOW TO RUN... —  read more 


It’s really nice to see your poor contribution recognized on the quarterly conference call! Down 25~30% from Q4. Continue to give it away, operators are seeing your lack of performance and technical failures in Mid Continent. LMAO😂😂😂

Why does Newpark allow?

Business unit managers to hire brother-in-law trucking companies as vendors? Wouldn’t this constitute a blatant conflict of interest? They need to look closely and see this directly in front of them. Or do they really care

What happened to

The $2 billion dollar plan? Wasn’t that PV’s public proclamation?

2018 YE financials ~ Mats is carrying the company

Mud can’t even cover Corporate op-ex. 4.6% margin in fluids won’t cover the cost of borrowing $$$. NP in sad shape folks. 2018 best year for the competition and NP doesn’t even make headway, the you give Mr Screw it up a cool $1.5m parting gift?... —  read more
